Couldn't say no

I own a 2011 5.0. My next door neighbor owns a 2014 5.0 and purchased a JLT Carbon Fiber CAI. He thought it was going to help him get back the sound he liked from his 2009 Mustang. Well it didn't and he took it off and gave it to me. That's right. GAVE IT TO ME lol. I always help him out around his house and stuff so he just said you can have it. Why would I say no? Problem is that his is an automatic and I have a stick so he had to drill the hole into the tube. I didn't know until I was reading a how to that only the autos need the hole drilled. So are there any ideas on how to plug the hole up? Or am I SOL?

Go to Lowes and pick up 1/2 inch plastic plug in the hardware section. Get some gorilla glue to seal it. Done.

Will the heat from the engine or eventually the sun not melt the glue?

Check the spec of the glue.there are glues certified for the aerospace industry. Check the materials of the plug and their compatibility. Good luck, and share the results...

Any grommet will work. That's all they give you with the kit anyhow.

or go to any autoparts store and get a vacuum cap. My fiance traded her '14 auto in on a '14 stick and we transferred her air raid over with no problems by just capping the nipple.

But your car already has a factory CAI that works better, unless you have a tune that requires some sort of aftermarket one.

I know everyone says that the factory CAI really is designed best for the engine but this dude was handed a K&N FOR FREE and I already see people saying our shouldn't use it. I see this all the time "The stock air box is designed the best way possible for the 5.0 coyote" blah blah blah. Lol it's not gonna hurt the car unless it was made specifically for a tune. Yeah I get it if you wanna spend 400$ and want gains certainly steer clear from a CAI. But a free one seems like a sweet deal to me lol

Some CAI's require a tune change. Mine did, so check it out.

Plus a lot of them are very good at sucking up the nice dank hot engine compartment air.
Maybe run it down low, away from the engine heat and clear of the Torretto nozzle.

You will not notice a negative difference unless it is installed improperly. If it is free then why not?

I wouldn't put anything on just because it's free. Spend a few dollars on something like this for more gains than a CAI.

Did you guys just press it in there? No glue or anything?

Try a night temp epoxy. I've used that stuff before on a plastic intake and to this day the cars still on the road. It's sand able after fully cured. Works great imo. Intake was done four years and roughly 90000 miles ago

He got it for free, probably b/c the previous owner realized it was really a Hot Air Intake.... not a CAI.

If this is what he got for free, I'd put it in the garbarge before I put it on my car:


1. Its a HOT engine comparment Air Intake (HAI).
2. It will suck up water that drips in from the hood air extractors on the 13-14's.

The only kind of "CAI" I'd consider is a closed box style, that truly sucks ONLY cold air in from the front of the car, AND has the water protection since I have a 2014 with the hood vents.
